Restoration requires extreme precision and we do our utmost to replicate the original design and existing work as closely as possible. We work on the purity and tradition of styles, without in any way changing the original character.
Our work on historical monuments and heritage sites focuses on preservation, whether we are working indoors or outdoors. Upon completion of the project phases and commencement of work, we draw up a report which outlines the scale and impact of our work on the building. This diagnosis is used to help architects and contractors decide whether to conserve or modernise. It is also used for the completed works file and as a reference for future restoration work.
All our restoration projects for conservation or refurbishment fully comply with the Venice Charter:
“The conservation and restoration of monuments must have recourse to all the sciences and techniques which can contribute to the study and safeguarding of the architectural heritage.”
“The intention in conserving and restoring monuments is to safeguard them no less as works of art than as historical evidence.” As a result, we call upon external experts and consultants to approve or refute our plans and the project manager is informed of each decision.
